She’s so supportive. Matt Roloff’s girlfriend, Caryn Chandler, showed some love to his daughter-in-law Tori Roloff when she shared that she’s been struggling with body image issues during her second pregnancy. When Tori, 28, posted about her insecurities on July 6, Caryn replied, “Ugh … the body image insecurity train. I ride it often myself 🙈. Thank [you] sweet Tori — For a reminder to accept [and love] our imperfect selves (preggers or not ). Love [you] gurl — you glow inside, out and always 😘💕.”
Tori and her husband, Zach Roloff, announced on May 13 that they are expecting baby No. 2. “We are so excited to announce that Jackson is going to be a big brother!” the couple told Us Weekly at the time. “We can not wait to meet our sweet baby girl!” But unfortunately, for Tori, the experience of being pregnant again hasn’t always been about excitement and happiness.
The Little People, Big World mama shared with the world on July 6 that, “This pregnancy has been a lot harder on me than the last.” Why? Because she’s had “a harder time accepting my body this go around.” Tori wrote, “Don’t get me wrong — I’ve been so lucky … I’m not sick (anymore) and I haven’t had any complications (thank the lord). However … I’ve gotten bigger a lot faster than I did with Jackson and I’ve become a lot more insecure.” Poor girl!
Tori continued, “Hearing people ask me if I’m sure it’s not twins definitely does not help (for all our sakes — don’t ever ask a woman this question. Like ever). It’s been hard to really enjoy this pregnancy because I’ve let my own body image issues get in the way. Us as women are so badass. Like we can grow babies. And I know I need to give this up to God right and be thankful for this gift — and I’m trying, trust me. But for all those women out there — pregnant or not — you need to hear this just like I do: you’re beautiful, you’re strong, and dang it love yourself no matter what. I know someone besides just me needs to hear that today. So excuse me while I go try my best to live out these words and continue growing a freaking human being 🎀👶🏻.”
Caryn wasn’t the only one to send Tori some support after she posted that message. One fan wrote, “I was asked if I was having triplets! Been there sister and sending you a big hug because mama’s bodies gotta do what mama’s bodies got to do!!” Another follower said, “I’m sorry you’re going [through] this Tori. Asking if it’s actually twins, so rude! Keep glowing, all the mamas 🙌🏾.” That’s right, Tori! Don’t let the haters get you down.
